"Home Run" Rounds The Bases

8 December 2013 12:07 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

In the realm of inspirational sports movies, Home Run doesn’t quite fit in. It doesn’t hinge on the underdog team winning a trophy but instead focuses on one disgraced sportsman overcoming addiction. It’s meant to be an uplifting and spiritual film (which it is), yet it does so without completely descending into Christian propaganda that makes similarly-minded films so heavy-handed (like October Baby).

Baseball super star Cory Brand (Scott Elrod) is a belligerent alcoholic. After getting mightily aggressive on the field, going so far as to minorly assault the batboy, he’s suspended from the team. His sassy manager Helene (Vivica A. Fox) does some damage control and sends him to a rehab program in his hometown and forces him to coach a little league team. One of the boys on that team, Tyler (Charles Henry Wyson), turns out to be his son via Cory’s high »

Journeyman The Complete Series DVD Review

26 April 2013 1:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Creator: Kevin Falls

Starring: Kevin McKidd, Gretchen Egolf, Moon Bloodgood, Redd Diamond, Brian Howe, Charles Henry Wyson,

Running Time: 585 minutes

Certificate: 12

Extras: 75 Minute Retrospective Documentary, Pilot Commentary, 20 Minute Feature On Where The Series Could Have Gone, Deleted Scenes, Image Gallery

Journeyman is a sci-fi show more drama than science fiction. It arrived at a very difficult time for television, as a writer’s strike was looming and viewing figures of those that may have recorded the show were not being taken into account. It only managed a 13 episode season in 2007, and has only now received a DVD release. That comes as a surprise, as this is a fresh and memorable show that uses its familiar premise to powerful effect.

Kevin McKidd plays Dan Vasser, who one day inexplicably time travels. No explanation is giving for the event, he merely gets a headache and finds himself in the past. This »

'Home Run' review: Vivica A. Fox and Scott Elrod manage only a ground rule double

18 April 2013 6:00 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

The first rule of any baseball movie is that the guys cast to star in it have to look like they can play. And in "Home Run," Scott Elrod had the build, the swagger and the sweet swing of a big leaguer. That makes him and this thin tale of 12-step redemption credible and watchable, if nothing else.

Elrod, a character actor who played a hunk hired to perform the fake film script in "Argo," here is a big-league slugger with alcohol problems and daddy issues.

The booze we can see in his everyday routine -- dumping out the soft drink, filling the cup with vodka. And the daddy problems we're shown in a prologue, when a young Cory Brand had to "be a man" and take fastballs from his drunken, abusive father.

It all blows up that day Cory's drunkenly called out after hitting what he thought was an inside-the-park home run. »
